Ben Salango on Civil Rights
One can support both Black Lives Matter and the police
Salango said West Virginia needs a governor who would bring people together and not tear them apart. "We need a governor who is not going to make racially insensitive comments, referring to children as thugs," Salango said, referring to comments
Justice made after a high school basketball game earlier this year. Salango said he rejects the notion that one can't support both the Black Lives Matter movement and police.
When asked about the Black Lives Matter movement, Justice said West Virginia is "blessed to have much better relations with others from other races," than the rest of the country. He said, "of course"
Black lives matter. "They matter like all lives matter, and we should absolutely always try to work together," Justice said, noting that he has a problem with looting and burning businesses.
